Letter From the Publisher
On the 23rd, the Autumnal Equinox returns, beginning a seasonal shift from sultry summer weather to drier, milder fall days ahead. As always, this September 2018 issue of Natural Awakenings is filled with an amazing assortment of creative, inspiring and motivating viewpoints from the natural healing community, locally and nationwide. As publisher of this Tampa Bay issue of the magazine, I’m pleased to spread awareness of the movement’s progress.
September is National Yoga Month and yoga enthusiasts here at home and across the U.S. are busy raising awareness about the far-reaching benefits of this time-honored practice. On page 24, we offer insight on yoga teachers and centers here at home in Tampa Bay, and on their creative approaches to living a yogic lifestyle.
In “Forever Flexible: Keep Joints Naturally Healthy” (page 28), freelance health writer Lisa Marshall reveals emerging awareness of the severity of joint disease in the U.S. This article highlights natural health approaches to joint health of benefit to most anyone seeking overall wellbeing (especially those who suffer creaky knees, sore hips, shoulder pain or a stiff neck). Marshall also includes a concise list of supplements for healthy joint longevity.
Now is the time to take action. Naturally healthy relief is in sight. We trust this issue of Natural Awakenings will spark the imagination and bolster your sense of real empowerment.
As always, open your Heart and mind and read on.
